ok so another ficm question ??

ok so i guess my ficm is bad . ok what new huh ? ok my questions is this . when we send our ficm off to have it fixed. do they just re sorder or replace the resistor with a better one or what ? and if they do replace them then what do they replace them with and if they do replace them what part numbers. and what is the best to replace them with to make them better and last longer ? im not an electronics person but i do have common knowledge . and i know ppl might be on reserve about telling there secrets but i think it will help alot of us guys out ? ok so here r the questions

1. do ppl that fix the ficm just re-solder or replace parts ?

2. is they do replace then what is best parts or part numbers to replace them with ?

3.what parts is found to be the best in lasting longer ?

I think they just resolder the resistor or capacitor or whatever it is. The joint is cold soldered from the factory and gets loose over time

Go to FICMrepair.com. The guys name is Ed and he gives some explanation of how he repaired them. I have never heard a bad word about the guy or the work he does. I have seen many guys that contacted him that said he is more than willing to describe his repair process.

And for more money they can use heavy duty/upgraded parts instead...Although I don't know what parts those are!

FICMrepair.com has a ton of experience and all of the feedback shows that his repairs are reliable. Since the cost is reasonable and the risk of repeat issues is low - I would highly recommend them. I have iused them for my FICM and spare (and for several friends FICMs). I like a bargain, but when it comes to electronics, I want to go with someone that has a large customer base and is highly regarded. When my FICM went out, I came VERY close to being stranded! Saving $100 on a FICM repair isn't a bargain to me if I am unsure of the quality of work and the parts.

Not really, alot of places will charge an up fee to fix it if a repair has already been attempted, so you loose your "savings" if they can not fix it. Or worse case scenario you completely fry it and have to by a new one at Fords cost.
